GILLSAWS

About


The concept for GILLSAWS was born after being gifted a 1500 piece jigsaw puzzle,
of the state of California, on my return from a 6 month solo stateside odyssey. 

Inspired to create a contemporary collection of jigsaws, and and after several unsuccessful attempts to gain help from the few remaining UK jigsaws manufacturers - determined to make this happen, and not wanting to outsource overseas - I set out to make the puzzles independently.

A rise in the awareness of mindfulness and wellbeing has given popularity to
meditative and calming pastimes. Producing handcrafted, design focused, jigsaw puzzles, GILLSAWS will collaborate with artists, illustrators & designers to release exclusive limited editions. With a psychedelic-surreal-optical aesthetic, I hope to
give new life to a much loved classic product, whilst encouraging people to unplug
& tune out from their, increasingly demanding, digitally lead lifestyles.

Each puzzle is handcrafted by myself in a small studio in Brighton, UK, using
an industrial roller press, a custom made die and a WHOLE lot of love.
